How Custom Orthotics Can Improve Your Athletic performance this summer

If you are an athlete, orthotics is something you shouldn’t be overlooking. Besides helping with your overall comfort, they can help you dramatically improve your athletic performance.

How It Works

Orthotics are designed to relieve pain and enhance performance by aligning the muscles, ligaments and bones of the lower body. When you are constantly moving, it is easy for these parts of your body to shift, tear, or be stressed, which then causes pain.

Custom orthotics are designed specifically for your body to help keep everything in its intended place. They are also made from different materials and provide varying levels of support, so that you get exactly what you need for your activity level.

The key element that athletes must remember when getting fitted for custom orthotics is that in order to perform at your best, your shoes must be tailored to the activity that you are doing. Thankfully, custom orthotics are made for a wide variety of sports and activities.

Get Custom Orthotics If You Participate In…

Running

Running shoes are made to fit everyone’s feet in general, but most people’s feet need a bit of extra attention. We all have different foot shapes, which come with a unique set of needs.

Cycling

When you have a shoe that fits you right, the distribution of power to the pedal is an easier and smoother move to make. Custom orthotics will also help with minimizing leg fatigue, forefoot pain, “hot foot”, and knee pain.

Golf

Orthotics are great to even out weight distribution and to stabilize your feet, which lessens fatigue on your body. They also correct your posture, which is important to maintaining your golf swing!
